Yes. Imagine that I create a library, which includes a firefox plugin
in python. I need to differentiate between what will end up in firefox
and the rest.
Automake has this ability, for example. You say something like:
megabardir = $(exec_prefix)/share/megabar/site
magabar_DATA = megabar_plugin.py
And automake has this convention that *dir is a dir and *_DATA is the
data which go into this directory. Given that we have a real language
here, there is no need for those conventions.
